The last few weeks have been tough and we appreciate the patience you have all exerted. We would also like to thank DPW, East Coast Construction, and many other local, state and federal agencies who have come together and turned this area around in such a short period of time.

Today there will be paving crews in the neighborhood for likely the entirety of the day. Please use caution if you live in the area that is being paved so that the crews have no delays.

Thank you again!!

BOOK DISCLOSURE - IMPACTING CRIMINOLOGY The policeman is the main character of any police story in real life and being the protagonist of the investigation and the arrest, he has to be better than all the other professionals who will succeed him in the process: judge, prosecutor, defense attorney. The modern police officer must have a broad and comprehensive understanding of crime in all its modalities, in order not to be outdated in its concepts and interpretations and become an ineffective public safety professional. A full understanding of their work enables the modern policeman to immediately connect a prison to a voluntary action, however isolated, or to connect that prison to a criminal organization. A simple prison is closed with the presentation of the culprit to a judge, but a complex prison has ramifications that will lead the Police to dismantle criminal organizations. Both are harmful to society in all its aspects, but that action, when connected to a criminal organization, has a greater potential for danger and if not understood, isolated, neutralized and repressed; it will grow and become through planned actions of hybrid warfare, a real danger for the very organization of the State, because when it reaches this stage, SOCIAL CHAOS will already be installed and the domain of CRIMINOCRACY will emerge. In order to provide data for a comparative study on this topic, I present my most recent book to fellow officers, whose synopsis is transcribed below: PUBLISHED IN ENGLISH โ€“ 547 PAGES. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0978WP1FK?ref_=pe_3052080_397514860 BOOK SYNOPSIS HETERODOX CRIMINOLOGY (CRIMINOCRACY versus CIVILIZATION), is a bold, daring and challenging book to CRIMINOCRACY. In Brazilian and world literature, CRIMINOLOGY has been discussed by people who are studious and reputable in its objectives, but this criminal science has also been very contaminated by stories full of lies and distortions about the reality of the facts, with the aim of deceiving and deceiving any person who reads these lies and sophistries or who becomes aware of them. The sophisms and lies in relation to Criminology in Brazil and in the world are part of efficient and effective actions of criminal hybrid warfare. The first objective of these criminal hybrid war actions is to destroy the structure of a traditional society through the establishment of SOCIAL CHAOS and the inversion of moral and legal values conquered by Civilization. The second objective of these criminal hybrid war actions is to neutralize and isolate the five organized societies of any country: CIVIL, POLITICAL, POLICE, LEGAL AND MILITARY. The third objective of these criminal hybrid war actions is to occupy State Power and establish a new order: CRIMINOCRACY. In these brief words, HETERODOX CRIMINOLOGY (CRIMINOCRACY versus CIVILIZATION) is a real ALERT to reputable people, as it is a book based on research carried out within the criminal underworld, dissecting its insides, to know its ways of acting in various modalities criminal in their origin and offer efficient and effective solutions to reverse this serious problem called: CRIMINOCRACY. STAY ALERT AND PROTECT YOURSELF UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. CRIMINOCRACY IS CRUEL.

I just want to take a minute to thank one of your fine officers, I believe his name is Allen Garcia. We were at polo last weekend when my husband had a seizure. He went out of his way to be kind and calming to those of us who were there scared and worried. The Firemen/EMT's were also wonderful. Please extend our thanks to Mr. Garcia and all of those fine officers who helped us. Thank you.

This probably won't help. But it won't hurt either. If anyone knows.. seen.. or heard about a tortoise about the size of a soccer ball..going missing..being sold..stolen.. or found.. within the last 48hours.. please contact me asap. I've had her for 7yrs. Since she was a baby. When my house caught fire I had to temporarily keep her at my parents house in Common Fence Point Portsmouth RI. That is where she went missing from. I dont suspect foul play. But I also don't trust anyone. The hope is she magically escaped the house and then the yard and is in one of the neighbors yards. I know I have some Portsmouth friends. Please keep an ear/eye out. If she made it to your yard she is underneath something hiding from the weather. Or dug a hole under something. Thanks ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Third time I've seen them unleashed on the beach at Island Park. This time one of them ran up to a man. I stayed way back and did a close up.
We donโ€™t get called when people have a good day. We get called when people are at their worst. So, if weโ€™re able to bring a little bit of difference in their lives, to help people, thatโ€™s why we do what we do. The Thin Blue Line represents that desire. The passion to protect and to serve, to aid the American people and to give all for the safety and security of the innocent. We fly the Thin Blue Line flag proudly to acknowledge the selfless sacrifice our officers make for us every day.

I was walking on the Island Park beach this morning and a guy was coming toward me with 2 big dogs that looked like this. One leashed, one not. I stopped dead. As he got closer, he LET THE OTHER ONE OFF LEASH and they both came barrel-assing toward me! He yelled "Don't worry, they're friendly!" They came right up to me, didn't hurt me or anything but they slobbered all over my jacket. I really resent that, are there leash laws in this town? Some people don't like being mauled and in my case dogs love me and always come close when they can, sometimes knocking me down.
